I guess so, for some reason I can't make my brain believe it haha

EDIT: Ok I am not an idiot, I just reread the original post and I agree with his post, I read how he described it wrong

Stop trying because you're right. The less wraps the more pulling power.

I like it, alot. Very unique jeep you have. I think your m6000 is just the right size for what you are using it for. Very nice.

I have a HEAVY MODIFIED winch on the front, a beefed up 8274. and it is my main self recovery or rescue winch.

the M6000 warn on the rear is for those Oh Sh.t moments. i looked at all winches, and decided on the short drum m6000 and here is why.

M6000 pulls
6.000 1 wrap
5.400 2
5.000 3
4 600 4

The M6000 short drum takes up little room, weighs 45.pounds and the little bugger is pretty fast at 10 ft per min full load pull. 50 ft of line is more then enough around the parts i wheel at for a self recovery. and i carry extensions for my main winch for those just incase times.

the M8000 at 50ft of line out pulls just over 6.000 and to get 8.000 you need to have all 100 ft of line less a few wraps to get that pull. and at max pull get around 8 ft per min with a 74 pound foot print. Over the many years i have been wheeling i bet 95 percent of my winch pulls i have used less then 50 ft of line and have only really used all the line when pulling with a snatch block.So most recoverys are using between 3,000 to 6.000 pounds of winching power.

I am not sure how much winching you have done, but i bet 90 plus percent is to the first anchour point you can get to. you may have a 8.000 pound winch but if your hooked to a rig or tree 40 ft out. your not getting 8.000 pull.

and if i am not ever happy with the m6000, a motor or gear change and it's upgraded.


most rear self recovery just needs a tug to get out of a hole you drop into or other some what nasty problem. when one changes ones mind on a line. Some times you just need small tug to get moving again.

The rears are smaller, so I get your point about pricing.
They look just like the pics at Quadrdatec, but better on black carpet like my LJ. The rear cargo liner is the only one that gave me a bit of pause. It seems to be made of lighter, somewhat more rigid material. I do not know if that means it would be more susceptible to puncture. Time will tell.
But they look really good.

Yeah, I was watching it. Not bad but as far as the guy being some great offroader is a joke. There is not a lot of chemistry between the 2 guys and Mr Wu is about as lazy as they come. Just my .02~
